Exporter

Deprecated
NOTE
This widget is deprecated. Instead of it, use the built-in client-side exporting. For further information, refer to the export option of a particular widget.

The Exporter widget allows you to export your chart, gauge or any other DevExtreme data visualization widget into an image or a document. The Exporter works in conjunction with other widgets and should not be used separately.

Included in: dx.viz.js, dx.viz-web.js, dx.all.js
Type:

Object

To operate, Exporter requires the PhantomJS WebKit version 1.9.X, which allows you to use the client-server model where PhantomJS performs as a server. Refer to the Deploy a Server topic for details on how to setup your server.

When your server is ready, add Exporter onto your page.

DevExtreme widgets are integrated with many popular libraries and frameworks. See the Installation section (for JavaScript libraries) or the Prerequisites and Installation section (for ASP.NET MVC framework) to find details on setting up DevExtreme with a particular library or framework.
